This class will give you the knowledge on how to start, plant, and care for a new native pollinator garden the first year it is put in. We will review preparing your garden site, how to test and amend the soil, and remove grass in an ecologically friendly way. We’ll cover proper planting techniques and care as your plants establish this first year. This class also has a component of community building where those who wish to can meet periodically after the class ends for support on how their garden is growing and help with the new community pollinator garden. These meetings may happen at the Community Center/Library Pollinator Garden or on-site in different participants’ yards.
